We all know what MPH is.
But what’s MPD? Milage per decision:
- Task-switching: By preventing focused, deep thought, we make fewer decisions that push our work forward.
- Fire-fighting: By rushing from problem to problem, our decisions become short-sighted instead of strategic.
- Stress-outs: By not allowing ourselves to think clearly and calmly, our decision-making ability becomes weaker.
All of these result in decisions that require new, better decisions to happen in future to fix today’s key issues. By enabling yourself to calmly focus on what matters, you’ll increase your MPD.
